It wasn’t the usual quiet early summer Sunday, also because it’s already pretty hot at Inter. Phone calls, emails, continuous contacts for negotiations, inbound and outbound. But the key point is always the same: unless you sell, you can’t buy. And so the last Sunday in June became the key date for an excellent sale. Marcelo Brozovic is now practically at Al-Nassr, the Saudi club where Cristiano Ronaldo plays. The agreement between the two clubs has been finalized in detail and it is now up to the player to finalize the deal. A matter of details as the dialogue with the club has been going on for days and here too it comes full circle: Inter collect €23m from the sale of the Croatian midfielder while Al-Nassr guarantees Brozo a three-year deal worth €20m net per season. An unmissable offer for everyone.

GreetingsStill, Barcelona tried to adapt until the last minute, focusing on the charm of the shirt and the club’s history and bringing coach Xavi, one of the masters of that role in recent history, straight onto the field. But negotiations to bring Brozo to Saudi Arabia were too advanced to change course. Therefore, a final formal approval between the parties is expected today before the contracts are signed. Inter thus handed over what could have been the next captain after the departure of Handanovic and D’Ambrosio: after several seasons of being the center of the team, Calhanoglu’s rise to the role of director toppled the untouchable status of Brozo, who this will say goodbye after eight seasons. Some stellar fans have also tried to preserve the Nerazzurri Epic through social media: “Stay,” Fabio Fognini wrote to him, with two Nerazzurri hearts. And Brozo replied ironically: “Rafi (the son, ed.) is ready to sign.” Curtain up on the question and on Marcelo’s adventures in Milan, where year after year he became more and more important and successful: a Scudetto, two Italian Cups, two Super Cups in his palmares, in addition to losing Europa League and Champions League finals making them the syllabus but they will be remembered.

And Frattesi?However, Brozovic’s departure is not a given for Frattesi’s arrival as the negotiating basis has since changed. Inter and Sassuolo had agreed a onerous loan with purchase obligation totaling 35m, including Mulattieri’s price tag for the Emilians (6m). Milan’s appearance has changed the cards on the table: the Rossoneri were due to meet Sassuolo between Wednesday and Thursday and could still go through. Milan are under assessment, Inter are waiting – thanks to the player’s yes – while Sassuolo is now changing his formula: immediate permanent transfer, take him or leave him. Derby’s served, play your game.
